General Support and Counselling

The Administration Office will provide orientation briefings. Students may approach the Curriculum Coordinator for curriculum matters and the Administration Executive for administrative matters, or any staff at the Administration Office. ITI staff members will also introduce alumni to students whenever possible and students may approach them for advice and assistance as well.

Students are welcome and encouraged to speak to the Director, members of faculty or administrative staff, if they have any concerns or encounter any problems during the course of the programme. Senior cohort students and alumni may also be asked to give guidance and support to the new students. ITI may refer them to external trained counsellors at their request or if deemed necessary.

Students may also contact the CPE Student Services Centre for enquiries on studying in Singapore and assistance during their course of study.

 

Facilities

ITI students are welcome to book school facilities for their own course-related training and rehearsal sessions, at no charge. ITI also offers students computer and internet access, lockers for their belongings at no charge. The ITI Library has a specialised collection of performing arts-related books and audio-visual resources and a general social science collection of books that are accessible to all enrolled students, at no charge.

 

Insurance

All students are required to purchase medical insurance which provides coverage for hospitalisation and surgery expenses.

The Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) is required by the Committee for Private Education (CPE) for the protection of the student’s course fees. ITI has adopted the fee insurance scheme for its FPS.

Please refer to Fees.

 

Orientation

Assistance will be provided to international students when they arrive, including meeting them at the airport if required. They will be given an orientation package including maps and general information about Singapore, as well as briefed on living in Singapore and matters like transportation, banking facilities, food centres, and grocery shopping around their neighbourhood.

During the first week of school, there will be a School Meeting held to introduce new students to faculty members, administration staff and current students, as well as to the curriculum. The new students will then be brought on a familiarisation tour of the campus and later be briefed on administrative matters.

More comprehensive information about applying to and studying at ITI, policies and procedures is provided in our Student Handbook.
